Z-class security, Z-class criticism, Z-class resignation!

New Delhi: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s Z-class security is causing quite the ruckus.

After BJP leader Kailash Nath Bhatt from Rajasthan raised questions, he has now taken it to an extreme. He has resigned and announced this via facebook.

“My post on Shri Bhagwat offended many within and outside the party…so I decided to tender my resignation,” Bhatt said.

What was this post?

“I don’t know why param pujya sarsanghchalak ji has been given Z-plus security and whether he has accepted it. Today the country’s security personnel themselves are not safe. Just recently, our soldiers were killed in Manipur… Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her security

continued on page guards,” he wrote in Hindi. “God is responsible for everybody’s security so why the fear… Please think…whether this security won’t distance you from the (RSS) cadre… Won’t this be called a status symbol? I couldn’t restrain my thoughts, I am sorry for this mistake,” he added in his post.

Immediate Reaction

He later apologised, saying he had spoken with “half and premature” knowledge. “After talking to friends and swayamsevaks, I admit my mistake. Today, some powers are trying to weaken and destabilise the nation… therefore, the security cover to param pujya sarsanghchalak ji is extremely important in national interest,” he posted on Facebook.

R Bomb

On Wednesday, however, Bhatt sent his resignation to state party president Ashok Parnami and also posted it on Facebook. “In the interest of the organisation, I am resigning from the post of state spokesperson,” he wrote in his resignation letter.
